How to Style a Coffee Table

Elements of a Perfectly Styled Coffee Table

Admit it, you've been wanting that Pinterest-esque coffee table for some time now. We'll let you in on a little secret: it's rather simple, and all it takes are a few key pieces and accents that lend a personal touch. Use this layout as your step-by-step guide or as inspiration to curate the items you already own. Here's how:

  1. First things first, begin with a base. Start the "layering" process with this gold-rimmed tray ($189) or one similar. Then, style it with small accessories like a brass accent ($175) and a scented candle ($30).
  2. Give your guests something to talk about! Coffee-table books that reflect your passions are a great place to start. The covers and content from books like In the Sprit of Palm Beach ($45), Design*Sponge at Home ($35), and Pioneers of Possible ($45) have stunning images that turn a good read into actual decor.
  3. Add functional accents, too! A bamboo box ($39, originally $70) is perfect for extra storage, while metallic coasters ($44), a bright matchbox ($10), and a candle snuffer ($40) lend a sophisticated touch.
  4. Lastly, complete the look with a bouquet of flowers. This arrangement ($260) is stunning, but you can keep it simple by grabbing an inexpensive bunch for around $7 from your local grocer or farmers market and adding them to your favorite vase.
